In advance of my next field trip to Israel (watch this space!), our highlighted fossil this week is the scleractinian coral Microsolena, a genus named by the French naturalist Jean Vincent Félix Lamouroux in 1821. The specimen above was collected [...]

  I’m having one of those weeks where a million things are all happening at once – no time to share anything resembling a coherent thought. Instead, here’s a pretty picture! I snapped this photo of Mount St. Helens out of the [...]

L'estinzione di Theropoda

Theropoda [2011-05-15 09:24:00]   recommend this post  (360 visits)
In questi giorni sto riflettendo molto sul senso di ciò che faccio. Sia come ricercatore paleontologico sia come blogger. Temo di aver sbagliato tutto negli ultimi 10 anni. Ero ancorato a vecchi concetti, a valori superati.  Uno dei miei modelli [...]

MET Opera. Die Walkure. Mining mechanical failure.

In yesterday’s Tarbosaurus post I noted that the Institute housing the specimen may not be much longer for this world. This is a serious and deeply unfortunate turn of events with major consequences for dinosaur palaeontology that could last [...]
